In depth

Verdict

HAVIN' A GOOD TIME stands out in this. She was fancied to win her third race in five starts when sent off favourite over C&D three weeks ago and duly obliged by five lengths. Roger Varian's filly hasn't stopped improving yet and can go in again despite a 12lb higher mark. Baby Strange had Oldjoesaid and Dorback well beaten when winning at Pontefract last month but was behind third-placed Damika at Wolverhampton last time. Sleepy Blue Ocean had Solar Spirit behind when fourth on the Polytrack recently while Dancing Freddy can be given a chance off his current mark.
